Ricardo S. Po, Sr., founder and Chairman Emeritus of Century Pacific, passed away peacefully and painlessly on October 11, 2021 from complications arising from surgery. His family was by his side throughout the ordeal until he returned to the Lord.
He was 90 years old and lived a full life raising his family, building his company, and perfecting his golf game.
Under his vision and leadership, the Century Pacific Group has grown its interests from affordable food and beverages to family restaurant chains and sustainable real estate developments. He leaves behind a legacy of compassion through the RSPo Foundation, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to alleviating hunger among vulnerable communities.
He was a deeply devoted husband and a loving father not just to his children, but to the entire company. So much so that many within the Century Pacific Group fondly and respectfully call him “Tatay”.
Po is survived by his wife, Angelita, his children, Ricardo Jr., Teodoro, Christopher, and Leonardo, and his daughters-in-law and grandchildren.
Due to IATF restrictions, the wake will be restricted to immediate family. Please join us for the Novena Masses on Zoom. Details will follow shortly.
In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations be made to Caritas Manila’s feeding program which was also one of his biggest advocacies.
